Kyle Rittenhouse Extradited to Wisconsin

Kyle Rittenhouse

Kyle Rittenhouse has been extradited and is currently held in jail in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Over defense protest, Rittenhouse has been transferred to face homicide charges. The defense’s filing alleged flaws with the extradition paperwork, and further alleged that his transfer to Kenosha in the high-profile case would “turn him over to the mob” and violate the teen’s constitutional rights.

The attorneys are using the occasion to detail the teen’s narrative of the incident. The filing presents the most detailed argument yet that Rittenhouse’s arrival on the streets was an act of patriotism, and that the shots he fired were all acts of self-defense.

“The nights of August 23 and 24 made clear that the state and local government could not (or would not) contain the insurrection,” the teen’s attorneys wrote.

Teen sent to Wis. to face charges

After extradition, Rittenhouse heldin jail in Kenosha
By Dan Hinkel

Lake County authorities on Friday afternoon handed off Kyle Rittenhouse to police in Wisconsin, where he faces charges stemming from the fatal shooting of two men and the wounding of a third during August protests in Kenosha, officials said.

Shortly after a judge ruled the Antioch 17-year-old should be extradited, Lake County sheriff’s deputies drove him to the border and passed him to deputies from the Kenosha County sheriff’s department, said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County sheriff’s office.

Rittenhouse — who is charged with murder and several other counts — was booked into the jail in Kenosha shortly after that, said Sgt. David Wright of the Kenosha County sheriff’s department. Rittenhouse’s lawyers had voiced concerns for his safety in an adult lockup, but Wright said the teen would be held in a cell for juvenile detainees at the facility.

Rittenhouse’s bond in Wisconsin previously had been set at $2 million, court records show. It was unclear whether there were plans to bail the teen out, and his lawyer, John M. Pierce, could not be reached for comment Friday night. Wisconsin court records did not indicate when the teen might first appear in court there.

Lake County Judge Paul Novak’s order to extradite the teen came a few hours after he presided over a morning hearing on the issue. Unlike prior hearings in Rittenhouse’s extradition case that were conducted online, the judge held this one in person.

Rittenhouse sat flanked by several police officers a few feet from his mother, Wendy Rittenhouse, in a courtroom where journalists and spectators were kept several feet apart because of the coronavirus pandemic. The teen, who did not speak audibly, wore a light blue dress shirt, dark tie and a mask over his nose and mouth.

Kenosha County prosecutors have charged Rittenhouse with shooting three men with an AR-15-style rifle Aug. 25 during protests over white police Officer Rusten Sheskey’s shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake, a Black man, days earlier.

Video from the scene of the protests showed Rittenhouse apparently trying to surrender to police in Kenosha after the shootings, but they didn’t arrest him. He was arrested the next day in Lake County and has been held without bail in the juvenile facility for two months.

Extradition proceedings typically are technical matters that don’t focus on the substance of the alleged crimes, but Rittenhouse’s lawyers have tried to block his transfer by arguing he fired in self-defense and is the target of a political prosecution.

The video is pretty clear- Rittenhouse fired into a pursuing mob. This fact, while interesting, is not relevant, at least to the prosecution. Read the rest of the article here: Chicago Tribune Digital Edition

    That’s a death sentence or an attempt to force a plea bargain.
    Change my mind.

  2. Hack Stone says:

    He gunned down a mostly peaceful convicted child molester. So of course the left is out for blood.

  3. 5th/77th FA says:

    What a farce. Been watching this since they made the news the other night. If this young man is convicted of any crime, other than an underage curfew violation, the entire concept of self defense against mob rule is gone.

    Cities are paying millions of dollars and groups are making heroes out of pure unadulterated scum, yet a young man defending himself is persecuted. Yes I said persecuted, NOT prosecuted. Not sure what video evidence these persecuting prosecutors are seeing that we don’t, but in my opinion, they have ZERO case against him.

    This crap has gone way yonder past just pissing me off. There but for the Grace of God go any one of us.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      He didn’t violate curfew, 5th/77th. He violated gun laws in both states because he’s under age and unaccompanied (unless that’s been proven otherwise).

      • 5th/77th FA says:

        May be wrong Mi’Lady, but seems as if I saw something a bit bit back that Illy noise had decided that he really hadn’t violated any of their state gunz lawz cause he never had possession of the weapon there. in Illy noise. Seems as if the Wisconsin persecutor/prosecutor was leaning on the Illy noise persecutor/prosecutor to keep Kyle locked up “for protective custody” or…reasons. There was also a blurb, in the early part of all of this, that Kyle was being “supervised” by the adult owner of the weapon he had. A lot of stuff on this case has either disappeared from the inherwebz, or gotten so buried that it’s hard to dig back up.

        We all know that this is a politically motivated hatchet job/witch hunt simply because the young man is a white boy that defended himself. It is that simple. I am of the opinion, too, that 99% of us would have done the same thing that Kyle did, defend ourselves, and if we were on the jury, he would walk out of the courtroom a free man.

        Better to be judged by 12 than toted by 6.

    • 5JC says:

      I don’t know if anyone of us would have grabbed a rifle and gone on volunteer riot patrol security. I know I wouldn’t. This is the exact reason I wouldn’t.

      • 5th/77th FA says:

        Yeah Roger that 5JC, smart money would have been stay at the house that night, as pointed out by others. I’m all in on that aspect. My point was simply that if any of us (most) found themselves being pursued by a mob, select fire would have been directed toward the threat axis. Or as AW1Ed would say, take out the alligator that was closest to the boat. You didn’t find me traipsing off toward the ATL when all the crap was going on up there back in the early summer.

        You woulda found me where I was, dug in deep, wide awake and ready at Firebase Magnolia, ready to defend what is mine.

        • Robert says:

          Pursued by a crowd that just watched you kill someone*
          Someone was catching a garbage can on fire he ran up pointing the gun at the group of people starting the fire. They rushed him and he killed one of them and took off running. Id be with the self defense theory if he didn’t run up aiming a gun at a group of people killing one of them then getting chased by the group of people and killing another one and shooting another.
          Out of state with a gun that he legally can’t have and isn’t registered to him.

  4. rgr769 says:

    I beg to differ with your statement that Rittenhouse “fired into a pursuing mob.” He first shot a man who hit him in the head with a skate board and grabbed his rifle, then he shot a man who pointed a pistol at him and who later admitted he was attempting to shoot Rittenhouse. If skateboard man hadn’t been slightly off target with the edge of his skate board, he would had broken Rittenhouse’s neck.

    • Hack Stone says:

      The first shot took out the convicted sex offender. It was at that point that mob of mostly peaceful rioters starting pursuing him, with the one guy whacking him with the skateboard (DRT), and the the dude with the pistol being “disarmed” with a hunk of meat expediently removed from his bicep.

      • timactual says:

        That gives us an idea of the intelligence of those folks; chasing an armed person who has already shot one person. Proof that Darwin’s natural selection does not work in the modern world.

        • USMC STEVE says:

          We were trained that a mob has no brain, no conscience, and no intelligence, thus making them very dangerous and something to be dealt with very violently and quickly.

      • rgr769 says:

        I was just referring to the “pursuing mob” stage. I know the first guy shot was that moron sex offender who came after him for putting out their arson fire.

  5. rgr769 says:

    He didn’t violate any gun laws. He didn’t possess the rifle in his state. The rifle was loaned to him in Kenosha, And I believe it was legal for him to carry even though he couldn’t legally purchase it.

  6. The Other Whitey says:

    Anyone who’s seen the video knows he fired in self-defense. Rittenhouse was retreating from an angry mob. He called 911 on the first asshole he shot, then had to retreat from more of them. The other shots were fired from the ground after he fell and was overtaken. While on the ground, he also presented his rifle at several dickheads and held fire when they backed off, only engaging immediate threats. His actions give no indication that he showed up with violent intentions. Rather, it’s pretty clear that he found himself in an oh-shit situation, tried very hard to keep his head on straight, and only fired when he genuinely feared for his life.

    You can criticize his decision to be there in the first place, but he broke no laws doing so. I’m pretty sure he was wishing he’d stayed home before he even flipped the selector off safe, but again, he broke no laws and demonstrated no criminal intent. The same cannot be said of the assholes he shot, or the other assholes who pursued him.

    What the hell kind of moron tries to bum-rush a guy who has a rifle, anyway? Fucking Darwin Awards!

    • SFC D says:

      Kyle Rittenhouse showed more restraint, more awareness, and more shoot/no shoot judgement than most adults would in that situation. And while it may or may not have not been a good idea for him to be there, he did nothing illegal.

  7. OWB says:

    Should he live long enough for this to play out in the legal system, it will likely result in not only his complete exoneration but in an award of great sums of $$ for things like false arrest and harassment. His guards had better be taking VERY good care of him.

  8. Only Army Mom says:

    Just needing to wait for all the charges to be filed, and the case to come to it’s farcical conclusion…to be immediately followed by full Presidential pardon/exoneration/whatever the proper legal term. Of course, issued with a statement about the hypocrisy of not charging or prosecuting all those mostly peaceful protesters.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      Unfortunately for Rittenour, the President cannot pardon or commute non-Federal crimes.

      And it requires conviction, and acceptance which is Legally an admission of guilt.

      (Lawyers reading this, please correct if I have any of this wrong.)

      He needs a very good lawyer, and the cost is going to be “moderately large house in decent neighborhood” even if acquitted.

      • rgr769 says:

        As an ex-lawer, I can say you are correct. He has only been charged with state crimes and only that state’s governor can pardon him. A president can only pardon or commute federal convictions.

  9. penguinman000 says:

    I’m no lawyer but I have a more than passing familiarity with the law (not as a defendant). IMHO there are two separate issues here.

    The morality of Rittenhouse’s actions and the legality of those actions.

    Morally I think most of us would be in agreement that he had a right to defend himself from the mob. It’s pretty clear from the video footage and news stories that he was being attacked and responded in a reasonable manner.

    Legally I think the prosecutors could’ve had a slam dunk case with a minor in possession of a firearm. After looking up the WI code it appears he could only possess a fire arm if he were hunting or attending firearm instruction. Instead they are hitting him with various other charges, including 1st degree intentional homicide. That’s a high hurdle for them to navigate.

    I wonder if they have held back the firearms charges to be able to hit him with something else if he can muster a defense? Exhaust his fiscal resources and then come back with a second round of charges?

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      If one of adults there was serving him, and he became separated due to police orders, he is likely to be found not guilty of possessing the rifle.

      They may pass on that one due to slam-dunk certainty of acquittal, or maybe as a plan B to run the meter. I suspect they would get called on malicious prosecution, though.

    • USMC STEVE says:

      I wonder if they are shooting for the moon in order to fail, but like they failed daring greatly?

      The firearms crime is a misdemeanor.

  10. Commissar says:

    He is a shitbag.

    And in about a year he will be a convicted murderer.

    • SFC D says:

      You’re a fraud.

    • Penguinman000 says:

      Your complete ignorance of the law combined with partisan bloodlust is the same equation prosecutors use to over and undercharge people. Let’s not apply the law as written, lets selectively apply it to meet some partisan goal. That’ll work out well for short sighted idiots such as yourself. Your moronic thinking enables people to avoid the consequences of their actions. No wonder you were a 1 department and 1 year wonder.

      1st degree intentional homicide is a stretch based on the publicly available evidence. Not that I would expect a man child like you to be concerned with the abstract concept of justice. Damn any concept of justice, take action that feeds your base desires without any concern for long term consequence. You suck as a human being.

      Perhaps you should should ruminate in the rule of law before you speak? Who am I kidding, you lack the capability for honest self reflection or concern for anything beyond your own self gratification. Liars and cowards are quick to point fingers and assign blame. Men actually live up to their word and follow moral guideposts (not that a morally bankrupt jackass like you would know that).

      How about you go shop for some gender neutral tampons and let the adults speak you intellectually shallow smooth brained mouth breathing oxygen thief?

    • Penguinman000 says:

      And besides, shouldn’t you be off telling Americans who have a darker skin tone than you what to think and say you fuskin racist/facist? Can’t let folks think for themselves. To paraphrase Biden “if you don’t vote for me you ain’t black!”

      How’s it feel to be an “enlightened” racists attempting to dictate from your imaginary ivory tower?

    • NHSparky says:

      Guess again.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      Are you not also out helping folks during riots? Help, as you see it?

      And you are of course armed for your own safety, right? And, armed or not, you would use deadly force if attacked with same?

      He was attacked and pursued, in classic “retreat triggers predators” fashion. That fools and thugs attacked someone visibly armed is no slur on the kid. His response was remarkably restrained, and remarkably effective. Plenty of professional LEOs and professional Infantry have commented on the remarkable performance of a 17 year old kid, alone and overwhelmingly outnumbered by a demonstrably violent threat.

      Is part of your reason to libel him that he demonstrated the correct response to anarchist mob violence? Thus, he gave an educational example on what to do when attacked by a terrorizing anarchist demonstrably-violent mob.

      Cocksucking traitor.

    • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

      Why is he a “shitbag” to you, Major Moonbat? Is it because he didn’t roll over and be a compliant victim to the mob violence directed at him?

    • USMC Steve says:

      By the way, fucknugget, it has been pretty quiet in Kenosha since he killed two domestic terrorists, and turned one more domestic terrorist into a lefty. How do you explain that?

    • The Other Whitey says:

      Lars weeps for a dead rapist. Sounds about right.

      By the way, Lars, this Rittenhouse kid has more balls than you ever will. For that matter, so did the shitbag rapist. It’s easy to have more balls than a chickenshit coward like you.

  11. USMC STEVE says:

    At this point in time in that part of the country, I think, barring an all black jury being seated, it would be very hard to railroad this dude. They must be getting really disgusted with all this socialist democrat non-governance and general anarchy up there.

  12. USMC STEVE says:

    Relevant to the communist/Marxist/penis wrinkle lars, why do any of you even bother reading his smegma any more. I have taken to seeing that commissar tag, and just shooting on by, because the time it takes me to read it is time I don’t get back out of my life. I already know I will get nothing out of it, and thus that it has no value, so I give it that amount of attention that it deserves – none.

    Kyle’s a hero, period. At 17 years old, he stopped a riot cold, (something any number of politicians and their tin star lackeys couldn’t or wouldn’t manage) identified an ambush and fought his way out of it with ZERO collateral damage. Tired of all the “herrDERRR he fired into a crowd” horseshit. It’s a LIE and if you state such, YOU are a lyin sack of shit. We’ll need more Kyles before this is over and done with.
